Introduction 

From the date that the United States of America declared that a state 
of war existed between our country and Germany, it was inevitable that 
Base Ball would, at some time or another, be affected by the beginning of 
such an abnormal condition. It was a question of time and results as to 
when the blight of war would be most severely felt, and a question as to the 
duration and necessities of the war as to how it would be felt. 

At no time did organized Base Ball lag in Its duties or try to do other 
than co-operate with its country. Indeed, had organized Base Ball not 
received indirect assurance that a clear traclj was in front of it and that it 
should go ahead, it might never have begun the season of 1918. It would 
have been far easier not to have started than to have started and felt forced 
to cease activities. There was no intimation at the beginning of the year 
1918 that Base Ball was not acceptable. Quite the contrary, all the news- 
papers handsomely supported Base Ball and fitted themselves to go forward 
with it in a manner even more entertaining and more complete than that of 
the past, everybody basing an opinion that it would be better to have the 
tonic of good clean sport before the public, than to have citizens at home 
become morbid and misanthropic on the subjects which were demanding inter- 
national attention. 

The work or fight order of the Provost Marshal's office of the United States 
army was not dreamed of nor anticipated, and it was that order which really 
made Base Ball an impossibility. It gathered to the active forces of the 
United States all the available man power within the limit of the draft years. 
The law was not quite clearly understood at the beginning, the more so as 
there were those who believed that the national game was as essential as 
the theater and the moving picture industry. When a ruling was made, it 
was immediately apparent to all who knew professional Base Ball well that 
it would be impossible to go on. The major leagues, which were perfectly 
willing to abide by any desire of the Government, still wished to preserve 
intact a record for continuity that never had been broken since their organiza- 
tion, and asked for an extension. This was granted, but not in such a way 
that the major league seasons could be completed in toto. 

Most of the minor leagues had abandoned their seasons early. This, too, 
was due to the fact that they could not get and hold players. The Inter- 
national League was the only minor organization which "carried on" to the 
'finish. 

A few of the players showed some disposition to evade the front by 

^"jumping" to outside teams. It may not be out of place to state here that 

-some of them at least were offered financial induceinent, and such offers 

^were no less censurable than the conduct of those who jumped. To the 

credit of organized Base Ball, however, let it be stated that not a half dozen 

out-and-out quitters can be found in the ranks of the players, and the players

as a whole are entitled to this recognition, because those who have been free 
with criticism and unfamiliar with the facts, have attempted to make it 
appear that the body general of ball players was involved. That is absolutely 
not true. 

The "Little Red Book," as it has been facetiously called, makes its appear- 
ance in 1919 for the benefit of Base Ball enthusiasts with the records of 
the abridged season exactly as they have been published at the close of all 
seasons. 

For a few weeks after the suspension of the major league seasons none 
knew what the future had in store. Base Ball, through its owners and 
through those who loved it devotedly as the national game for more than a 
quarter of a century, was shrouded in gloom. For this, much was due to the 
fact that those who were responsible for the conduct of the game felt that 
their motives had been misconstrued. There are no more patriotic citizens 
than those at the head of organized Base Ball. 

Fortunately for all, the shadow has lifted. The signing of the armistice 
by the powers involved in the war has ended hostilities. We earnestly pray, 
not only ended them for the period in which we are living, but for all time. 
Always brutal at its best, war, with modern engineering appliances, hag 
become more horrible than the Imagination had been able to conceive. Base 
Ball now will go on. Our national game is the one great sport of the world 
to-day. Results seem to have made that plain. It is the greatest sport that 
has been devised and amplified in any country. It is being played now by 
more thousands than ever before, and it will continue to be played by more 
thousands as the years go by. It will be witnessed by more thousands. The 
returning soldiers are perhaps even more enthusiastic about it than those who 
have remained at home. This is gathered by their conversation and by their 
Inquiries for knowledge. Our national game Is the game of our soldiers, and 
our soldiers are the admiration of our country. Truly this is a fit combina- 
tion for this sport of ours, which is identified so closely with American 
history since 1S70.

SPALDING'S OFFICIAL BASE BALL RECORD. 5 

John Arnold Heydler 

By John B. Foster. 

The National League has a new president, whose term _began in 
December, 1918. His name is John Arnold Heydler, and he com- 
bines the offices of president, secretary and treasurer, the latter 
two being held by him before the members of the National League 
circuit mlide him president tor three years. 

Mr. Hevdler was born in Lafargeville, N. Y., a town that is situ- 
ated near the Canadian border ; in fact, within walking distance, 
one might say, from Clayton, of Thousand Island fame. From 
ihere in early boyhood he removed to Rochester Avith his parents, 
where he learned the printers' trade, thereby following the foot- 
steps of many other Americans who have been printers' "devils." 

The next step in his career was to accept a position in the Gov- 
ernment printing office at Washington. Leaving that, he associated 
himself with Mergenthaler, the inventor of the linotype machine, 
and an invention which was to revolutionize typesetting for news- 
papers and lor book print. He was fortunate enough to be in with 
Mergenthaler to the "finish," so to speak, and saw the machine 
become a success. Then he accepted a position as linotype operator 
on the Washington ^tar. While a printer he also assisted in 
reporting games — outdoor games — a practice which was by no 
means uncommon in cities larger than Washington. It was this 
which drew him into Base Ball, in which he was particularly inter- 
ested, and that, too, is exactly Avhat befalls ninety printers out of 
one hundred — they get interested in Base Ball. 

While a resident of Washington and still engaged with the Wash- 
ington mar, Mr. Heydler played Base Ball himself. He was presi- 
dent for some time of the Washington liight Infantry Athletic 
Association. He intimates that he considered strongly at one 
time the advisability of going into the Virginia League as a regular 
player. In the early twenties of his life he became ill and for 
some time was compelled to cease all athletic activity. While con- 
valescing he watched ball games, one of the best recreations in the 
world for convalescents. He happened to be present one afternoon 
when the umpire did not appear and he was asked to umpire. He 
filled the position and must have succeeded, for he was invited to 
umpire again. Few are the men who have been thus fortunate. 
Among other games which he umpired were those for the Univer- 
sity of Virginia. 

While this was going on, Mr, Heydler was fortunate enough to 
make the acquaintance of Nicholas E. Young, then president of the 
National League, and it was through Mr. Young that Mr. Heydler 
essayed to become a National League umpire. His first attempt at 
major league umpiring took place one afternoon in Washington 
when the regular umpire failed to make train connections. Mr. 
Young suggested that Mr. Heydler become the substitute and he 
accepted. The game was between Washington and Pittsburgh. 

Subsequent to that. Mr, Heydler made the circuit of the National 
I^eague as an umpire. The further that he traveled and the longer 
that he remained, the more determined his conviction that the posi- 
tion of National League umpire was not intended for a man with- 
out a steel-clad armor, mentally and physically. 

While Mr. Heydler was still a resident of Washington, and Harry 
Clay Pulliam was president of the National League, the latter 
needed someone to make up his records for him for the season of 
1902. That was the first year in which Mr. Pulliam was president 
of the National League. Mr. Heydler did make up the records and 
also retained his position on the newspaper for which he worked

Base Ball Clubs. 



SPALDING'S OPFJCIMi BASE BALL RECORD. 7 

in Washington. Having succeerlecl in this new undertaljing, Mr. 
Heydler accepted the position of private secretary to Mr. Pulliam, 
which the latter offered to him. In 1907 Mr. Pulliam went a little 
better and aslied the National League to malie Mr. Heydler secre- 
tary of that organization. This was agreed upon and the new 
secretary assumed office for the first time as a regular official of 
the league. 

In 1909 it will be recalled that Mr. Pulliam's health failed him 
and he was granted a vacation. In the meantime Mr. Heydler 
acted as president. Shortly after the return of Mr. Pulliam, in a 
moment of temporary aberration mentally, he took his life. Again 
Mr. Heydler became acting president until such time as the league 
could take action. The successor to Mr. Pulliam was Thomas 
Liynch. Mr. Heydler was not a candidate to succeed Mr. Pulliam, 
in spite of the fact that it has been variously asserted he was. 
After the term of Thomas Lynch was ended, former Governor John 
K. Tener became president of the National League. He resigned 
from office in 1918 and again Mr. Heydler became the acting presi- 
dent of the league. He was unanimously elected to the office which 
he now holds. 

To those who have known John A. Heydler intimately has fallen 
the pleasure of knowing a real man. It is possible that all such 
have not invariably agreed with him. That is the real privilege of 
being a member of the citizenship of the world. If we all agreed, 
we never would progress. We should become heavy, dull pated, 
fitolid mentally and non-progressive generally. Mr. Heydler acts 
from the convictions to which he tries to bring a free mind. His 
conclusions may not be in conformity with those of the party of 
the second part, but the party of the second part invariably car- 
ries away with him the assurance that the party of the first part 
is trying to be right. That is more than half way in any argu- 
ment. He is a democratic man, a man who never hesitates at 
work, and one who is better satisfied to do something well without 
ornaments than to turn forth a great many ornaments with a 
foundation of gingerbread. The writer knew him Avhen he was an 
umpire and has had the unalloyed pleasure of knowing him ever 
since. There was a time when one was in New York and the other 
in Washington, when there were not so many opportunities to 
meet, but the pleasure of the acquaintance never has ceased. 

Whatever Mr. Heydler tries to do for Base Ball in his capacity 
as principal executive of the National League, he will try to do 
well ; but no matter what he tries, he will not be thoroughly suc- 
cessful if he does not receive sincere co-operation. That has been 
proved too often. He is approachable and will discuss Base Ball 
to the last stroke of the clock and is perfectly willing not to dis- 
cuss Base Ball politics, which have too often succeeded Base Ball 
as a sport. There would be no Base Ball politics if the critics of 
the game absolutely and unreservedly ceased to write about that 
which is supposed to be Base Ball politics. Such questions are 
usually dormant unless there is someone to stir the pudding. Mr. 
Heydler's amusements are golf, fishing, the ocean and music. 
Although not a musician, he enjoys music. 

He has accepted his office in a quiet, matter-of-fact manner, and 
the affairs of the National League are going on as they did prior 
to the day that he was not president. The writer's belief is that 
they will thus continue to go on until the term of his office is at 
an end. He will do his part every minute to try to make Base 
Ball successful. He will do it because he is of the school of men 
who are in Base Ball with that deep-seated love of the sport that 
no human being on earth ever can know unless he has been through 
Base Ball from the "days of its infancy" to the present.

SPALDING'S OFFICIAL BASE BALL RECORD. 21 

The Spaldind Base Ball Hall of Fame 



NATIONAL LEAGUE 

Tn the National League, many of the faces that were seen in the 
Hall of Fame in 1918 will be found again in 1919. The shorter 
season did not give any added advantage to the younger players, 
as, in the long run. those who were best able to prove their effi- 
ciency again demonstrated that the player with the most expert- 
ness 'will hold his own against anyone. 

The greatest discussion, so far as the National League is con- 
cerned, has been relative to the batting championship. The situa- 
tion is unusual. South worth of Pittsburgh, who played in about 
half of the games of the league, leads the batters. Wheat of 
Brooklvn, who played in fewer games than Roush of Cincinnati, is 
first below Southworth. It is evident that, in a condition of this 
character, attention must be given to the player who has worked 
a longer period. Were it anything but batting, the editor of the 
Base Ball Record would feel that it would not be inadvisable to 
consider fifty srames as a standard. 

In battintr, however, it is well known that the player who goes 
through all'^of a season meets more and severer chances than the 
player v.'ho takes part in the game in but part of the season. The 
pitchers are always more proficient as a season draws nearer to its 
finish. It perhaps would be the position of some that the batters, 
too, are more proficient as the season draws to its close. If they 
are, it really is needed, because we do know that pitchers make 
better records in the latter part of the playing season than they 
do in the spring months. Hence, the conditions have not been 
altered raateriall.v. 

Everything considered, the editor would give the honor of lead- 
ing the league to Wheat of Brooklyn, with Roush of Cincinnati so 
close a second that there is nothing much between them except the 
variation of units, and Southworth of Pittsburgh, third, entitled 
to a great deal of "very honorable mention." Roush led the league 
in 1918. Both Wheat and Roush have proved that they are bat- 
ters of the highest type, as batters exist in the National League at 
the present time. They are not like the .400 batters of the past, 
but they are assuredly a trifle superior to the average batters who 
have played Base Ball in the major leagues for the last two or 
three years. 

It may be that no more .400 batters are likely to be born. It is 
almost certain that all batting will have its limitations, with the 
gloves noAV used by fielders and their speed, and there does not 
"seem to be a speck of an indication in the sky that gloves will be 
abandoned. It is not true that unusual pitching has subordinated 
the batting, so much as it is true that the thick glove has given 
the fielder the daring to undertake to stop or catch anything which 
is batted ; and, in addition to the daring, the glove helps the fielder 
because, by the thickness of its protection, a cushion is afforded to 
field the ball, which is far better than the cushion of the hand. 

The player who made the most base hits — singles — in the 
National League in 1918 was Hollocher, the newcomer with Chi- 
cago. He made a great many of them at timely moments, which is 
even better than making the greatest number. The most two-base 
hits were made by Groh of Cincinnati, who was equally successful 
the year before. The leader in three-base hits was Daubert of 
Brooklyn, with 15, and the home run batter again wa« Cravath of

HALL OF FAME. 



SPALDING'S OFFICIAL BASE BALL RECORD. 23 

Philadelphia, although this time he did not share the honor with 
another player, as he did in the season before. 

If Roush did fall back just enough to permit Wheat to get the 
lead over him for the batting championship, he did not forget to 
sacrifice, when it was his play to do so, and in 1918 he led the 
league with 33 sacrifice hits. 

In addition to having more two-baggers than any other batter, 
Groh of Cincinnati led the league in making runs. His total for 
3918 was 88, figures coincident with the figure "8" of the year. 
His total of two-base hits was 28, in which the figure "8" again 
was involvetf. The best base stealer in the National League in 1918 
was Carey of Pittsburgh, with 58, and again the figure "8" comes 
to the front. It was quite an ''8" year. 

In all these figures it is obvious that it is quite out of the ques- 
tion to try to compare the season of 1918 with that of any other 
season, for the very good reason that it was some thirty games 
shorter than the standard playing season. The year 1918, in which 
Base Ball was forced to suspend in order that the players might be 
released to occupations which would help the war, always will 
stand isolated in its relations to the other seasons of National 
League history. Purely from the standpoint of the lover of rec- 
ords and the individual v/ho does not see anything but dry detail 
in figures, and from a purely sentimental standpoint, this will be 
regretted ; but there lives not a soul who will regret that every- 
thing was done to try to win the war for freedom. 

The editor of the Record will award the lead in the catching 
department to Killefer of Chicago. Throughout the season it was 
universally recognized that his excellent work behind the bat was 
one of the primary factors for the success of the champions of 
1918. Killefer caught 104 games, with a percentage of .982. 
Schmidt in the same number of games had a percentage of .981. It 
is obvious that in actual work behind the bat, here were two catch- 
ers who were running neck and neck, so to speak. However, as 
Killefer was a trifle ahead, there will not be the slightest hesitancy 
in awarding him the lead for the reason that his team won the 
championship. A catcher of a championship team necessarily must 
be working at top speed all of the time if he can do so well in 
more than one hundred games. Schmidt of Pittsburgh is entitled 
to very honorable mention. His work was so nearly up to the 
standard of the other catcher that it cannot be overlooked, espe- 
cially in view of the fact that it was such a great personal improve* 
ment over the record which was made by Schmidt in 1917. Per- 
haps no catcher in the National League has shown more improve- 
ment in one year than was shown by Schmidt. 

Konetchy of Boston again leads the first basemen of the league 
with a good percentage for the season. He was hard pressed by 
Daubert of Brooklyn, but he played in more games than the latter 
and in every way held up his fielding standard. 

The leading second baseman of the league on the basis of fifty 
games is Fisher of St. Louis. So far as second, base is concerned, 
there is another "condition of closeness." Doyle of New York 
played 73 games and was just under Fisher. Doolan of Brooklyn 
played 91 games — almost all of the season — and was not far below 
Fisher. Cutshaw of Pittsburgh played 120 games, more than any 
other player at second, but was lower in percentage than all of 
those who have been named. 

Groh of Cincinnati leads the third basemen. He played 126 
games at third base and was three points better in the average 
than McKechnie of Pittsburgh, who played the same number of 
games. Groh has been much complimented for his ability on total 
chances, yet we find that McKechnie was within nine of him and 
that Smith of Boston had more than either.

AMERICAN LEAGUE PLAYERS IN THE SPALDIN! 
HALL OB' FAME. 



BASE BALL 



SPALDING'S OFFICIAL. BASE BALL RECORD. 25 

The leading shortstop of the league was Fletcher of New York. 
Notwithstanding the splendid record made by Hollocher of Chi- 
cago, the figures show that the veteran of the New York team not 
only took more chances than Hollocher, but played the ball much 
cleaner for his percentage of .959 against .929 for Hollocher. 
Fletcher rerhaps played the best Base Ball that he ever did in his 
life. He covered more ground, got into more plays and, on top of 
that, directed the field work of the team. 

Neale of Cincinnati is unquestionably the leading outfielder, with 
a percentage of .981 in 102 games. The surprising condition about 
the outfield figures of 1918 is the falling off of many of the vet- 
erans who have been considered to be the standard outfielders, 
judged by their percentages. Paskert, who led the league in 1917, 
was next to Neale, but there were others who had been well at the 
top in seasons prior to 1918 who did not find the road of last year 
easy to travel. 

The leading pitcher of the National League for the season of 
1918, based on the earned run standard of perfection, is Vaughn of 
Chicago. His work during the season that found the Chicagos the 
championship club of the league was in almost every respect the 
best that he ever did in his career as a professional Base Ball 
player. His control was excellent, and assisted by a clever catcher 
— Killefer — his judgment in pitching was Improved. He had plenty 
of speed and throughout the season pitched with an easy free arm 
motion, which seemed to indicate that whatever trouble he might 
have had in the past with his pitching arm had quite left him 
That he was an important factor in winning the pennant for the 
Chicago team will be undisputed. 

AMERICAN LEAGUE 

The season of 1918 brought changes in the personnel of the 
.\merican League Hall of Fame, but it did not include the taking 
away of the batting leadership from Cobb of Detroit. Every Base 
Ball enthusiast likes the fellow who can hit the ball. Some, who 
care little about the question of the best first baseman or out- 
fielder, do like to know who proved to be the best batter ; and 
again it is Cobb. It was the eleventh time in the last twelve years 
that he outbatted his fellow players. He also made more three- 
base hits than any other player of the organization, but he did not 
capture any more of the plums. In the season before, he made 
almost a clean sweep of everything which had to do with scor- 
ing runs. 

Cobb's principal rivals for batting supremacy were Burns of 
Philadelphia and Sisler of St. Louis. It is true there were players 
with better batting percentages than these latter two, but they did 
not play in enough games to warrant being taken into considera- 
tion. Both Sisler and Burns played more games than Cobb, but 
the lead of the Detroit player is such that it is safe to say he 
would have held his own in an equal number of games, unless 
there had been a collapse in his work quite out of precedent with 
anything which he had done in the past. 

If Burns of Philadelphia did not lead in batting, so far as per- 
centage goes, he did lead in the number of single base hits which 
were made by any one player. The total number of hits which he 
batted during the year was 178, and of these, 141 were singles. 
That is a record in batting of which any player may be proud. It 
was only ten less than were made by Cobb in 1917, when the season 
Went through to its completion. Burns also made the most hits of 
any player in the league. His total was 178, and second to him 
was Cobb with 161. 



26 SPALDING'S OFFICIAL BASE BALL RECORD. 

It was Cobb who made the most two-base hits in 1917, but 
Speaker of Cleveland took that honor away from him in 1918, with 
33 to his credit. Indeed, making two-base hits seemed to be just 
What Speaker liked most of all. He had a total of 150 hits, and 
when a player can make 33 of those good for two bases, he is 
helping along the batting strength of his team when it comes to 
scoring runs. It is the added base which frequently is of most 
value in Base Ball, as a base nearer home is always a base nearer 
a run, and games are won by runs, and by nothing else. 

The home run honor was divided between Ruth, the famous 
heavy hitting pitcher of the Boston club, and Walker. Each of 
them made eleven, and some of the drives were so long as to be 
specially noted for their flight. Each made home runs in double 
figures, while in 1917 no player succeeded in doing as much. 

The most runs in the American League were made by Chapman 
of Cleveland, who took the honor away from Bush, the best scorer 
in the preceding year. Chapman was closely pressed with his total 
of 84, as Co])b made 83 and Hooper of Boston scored 81, It is 
fcieldom that three players run so closely together as these three did 
in this respect. All of them are alert on the bases and are known 
as good run-getters. They most assuredly lived up to their repu- 
tation last season. 

The most successful sacrifice hitter in the league was Shean of 
Boston, with a total of 36. Closest in pursuit of him, and very 
close, was Chapman of Cleveland, with 35 — Chapman being the 
leader in 1917 — and Mclnnis of Boston, with 32. 

Sisler captured one honor by a wide margin. His total of stolen 
bases was 45, while Roth of Cleveland was second with 35 and 
Cobb finished third with 34. 

In fielding honors, Gandil of Chicago again led the first base- 
men. It was the third year in succession in which he proved his 
ability in that respect. He played first base in 114 games. Mclnnis 
of Boston, who played first in 94 games, was second, and Sisler of 
St. Louis, who was at first in 114 games, was third. There was 
little margin between them, as the fielding percentage of the leader 
was .992, which was shared by Mclnnis at the same figure, with 
Sisler at their heels with .990. 

Gedeon of St. Louis was the best fielding second baseman, with 
a percentage of .977 for 123 games, while E. Collins of Chicago, in 
9f> games, made a percentage of .974. Baker of New York led the 
third basemen with a percentage of .972 in 126 games. That was 
not the highest percentage made by a third baseman during the 
season, but Baker played so many more games than any of his 
rivals that he deserves the credit which goes to the leading third 
baseman of the season. Scott of Boston was the honor shortstop 
with a percentage of ,976 in 1:^6 games. McBride of Washington, 
who has held the honor in the past, played shortstop in only 14 
games, and during those he fielded at a rate of .987, In total 
number of games played. Peckinpaugh of New York, who partici- 
pated in 122, was next to Scott with an average of ,961. 

The leading catcher, so far as records go, was Perkins of Phila- 
delphia, with a percentage of .990 in 61 games. Second to him 
was O'Neill of Cleveland, whose work has steadily improved, with 
a percentage of .983 for 113 games. If a player has been engaged 
in fifty games or more it is the custom to give him the rating to 
which he is entitled, and on that basis Perkins would be credited 
with the honor over O'Neill. 

On the basis of earned runs per game, Johnson of Washington 
led the league. He is fully entitled to the honor, as throughout 
the season his work in the box was excellent. He pitched many 
extra inning games, and there is no doubt that his ability as a 



SPALDING'S OFFICIAL BASE BALL RECORD. 27 

pitcher had much to do with keeping Washington up in the race. 
Johnson bas not always been fortunate in being the league leader, 
in spite of the fact that he is known as one of the best pitchers 
in Base Ball. In 1917 Cicotte of Chicago led him at the finish, 
but in 191S Johnson is in front and the fans throughout the coun- 
try who are fond of his work in the box will be glad that such is 
ihe case. Tt is true that Faber of Chicago had a better percentage, 
with 1.22 against 1.28, but it must be taken into consideration 
that Faber pitched only eleven games before he left the Chicagos 
to enter the service, while Johnson took part in 39 games. The 
e.Ktra burden, which is apparent between a total of 11 games and 
S9 games, certainly must have its effect upon awarding the pitch- 
ing honors for the season. 

The pitchers of the Boston club, which won the championship, 
did not rate so high in the earned run record. Bush is the best 
of that club with 2.11. Next to him comes Mays with 2.21, and 
then Ruth with 2.22. Leonard dropped far back with 2.72. When 
these pitching figures are studied, one is led to believe that It was 
more than a combination of good pitching that helped the Boston 
club to win. Good batting, good base running and intelligent and 
well applif^d management, as well as excellent fielding. In other 
words, the championship was won by a team which could combine 
all winning Qualities to the best advantage, whether the pitching 
was as good as the one run and a fraction percentage or not. 

On the basis of fifty games, which is always accepted in deter- 
mining the leading outfielder, Strunk was in front with a per- 
centage of .988 in 113 games. Three players— Jackson, Chicasro J 
Hvatt, New York, and W. Miller, Boston, finished the season with 
a 'clean* slate — 1.000 per cent— but none of them played in more 
than 25 games, and one of them in as few as ten. 

The o-reatest number of assists from the outfield was made by 
two players — Walker of Philadelphia and Demmitt of St. Louis. 
Each had a total of 25 to his credit. The greatest number of 
assists in the catching department was made by O'Neill of Cleve- 
land, with 154 in 113 games. Perkins of Philadelphia made 103 
in 61 games, which is a fine showing. 

It is quite true that none of these records can be given com- 
parison in full with previous seasons, because of the shortened 
Base Ball year; but, notwithstanding that fact, they are good 
enough to prove that good Base Ball was played in spite of 
adversity.

Six games were necessary to complete the world series of 1918. 
Under new rule, first three games were played at Chicago and 
next three at Boston. The Boston American League club won 
twice in Chicago and twice in Boston. 

The attendance was not so large as in other years, but excel- 
lent with the world at war and Base Ball affected by conditions 
not of its own making. The series was played for the first time iu 
its history by the consent of the United States Government. This 
became necessary on account of the existence of the so-called "work 
or fight" order, by which all males subject to draft were notified 
either to enter an essential occupation or be called to the army. A 
time limit had been placed upon the services to be rendered by the 
ball players to their respective clubs. This limit expired September 
1, but in the case of those who were to take part in the world 
series the limit was extended to September 15. 

The games were well contested. The pitching was able, as 
Indicated by the small scores. The individual performances of the 
players were up to the standard. The fielding was perhaps a trifle 
better than in some years. This may have been due to the fact 
that the series was played much earlier and the cold winds of 
October were not at hand to numb the muscles of the contestants. 

A more extended account of the series and its games will be 
found in the Spalding Ofb^cial Base Ball Guide of 1919. The 
following is a record of the games as played, including scores : 

FIRST GAME— AT CHICAGO, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 5. 

With fewer spectators than have seen the world series begin In 
the past, with less enthusiasm, although not lacking music and 
cheering, a flag raising and songs, and that the game had been post- 
poned a day because of the inclement weather on September 4, the 
first contest between Boston American League and Chicago National 
League was played on Charles A. Comiskey's field in Chicago. 

It was won by a single tally, and that was the solitary run 
of the game. Shean scored it, and the start given him for the 
run was due to a base on balls. He was the first batter in the 
fourth inning. Vaughn tried to puzzle him with curves, but failed. 
Shean bats right-handed. Strunk attempted to sacrifice, but popped 
a weak fly to Vaughn, Whiteman made his second hit of the 
game — and, by the way, he was the only batter of either team 
who made two hits during this particular contest — and Shean went 
to second. Mclnnis rapped the ball to left field for a clean base hit 
and Shean scored. 

In the first inning Chicago had its most promising opportunity 
to score, although, sad for the Cubs, there were two hands out at 



SPALDING'S OFFICIAL BASE BALL RECORD. 81 

the time. The bases were filled and Pick was the batter. A single 
of any force would have scored at least one run — more likely two — 
while a long drive surely would have cleared the bases, as the 
Boston players were on edge and nervously expectant. Pick lifted 
a high fly to left field and Whiteman got the ball. Boston players 
breathed a sigh of satisfied relief and the Chicago fans murmured 
their disappointment. Whitera.in had to make a long run to be suc- 
cessful with the catch, and had he dropped the ball there easily 
could have been registered one of those "excusable errors" which 
are so healing to the disconsolate spirits of the losing — enthusiasts 
and players alike. 

In the sixth inning another long run by Whiteman — again for 
a fly — perhaps saved the day a second time for Boston. Once more 
there were two hands out and this time Whiteman was forced to 
speed with the ball instead of running into it. He captured the 
drive and the Chicagos again sat blankly in the shadow of their 
dugout. It was their last real threat of the day. 

So far as Vaughn's pitching was concerned, it is but justice to 
say that it would have won anything but a one to nothing game ; 
and one to nothing games are not common either in a championship 
for the Base Ball supremacy of the world or during the regular 
programme of the championship season. The score of the game

SECOND GAME— AT CHICAGO, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 6. 

Better weather and better conditions in every way increased the 
attendance at the second game of the world series. Manager 
Mitchell of the Chicago club continued his attack upon the Amer- 
ican League team with left-hand pitchers and selected George 
Tyler to oppose Bush. The game ended with the score 3 — 1 in 
favor of Chicago, and the outcome of the contest greatly aroused 
the spirits of the supporters of the Chicago club. 

Tyler not only pitched well against Boston but batted well. It 
was a base hit made by him that scored two runs for the National 
League representatives. The Boston players were unable to score 
in any inning except the ninth, and their rally with a lone run in 










..-=5

SPALDING'S OFFICIAL BASE BALL RECORD. 33 

that inning was exciting for a moment but futile — a flash in the 
pan in a contest that was fated apparently to go to their rivals. 

In the second inning Bush gave Merkle a base on balls. Pick 
bunted. The ball rolled toward third base and Thomas was unable 
to field it in time to stop the batter. Deal flied out without advanc- 
ing the runners. Killefer did most of his batting for the series 
this time and rapped a two bagger which scored Merkle and placed 
Pick on third. Tyler hit safely and Pick and Killefer scored, while 
Tyler was retired trying to reach second base. These three runs 
decided the game in favor of the Chicago players. 

In the sixth inning the Chicagos were very dangerous, but they 
failed to score. Hollocher began the inning with a three bagger. 
The infield played close and Mann died at first base, Scott throwing 
him out. Paskert batted sharply to Scott and this time Hollocher 
made an effort to score, but was unable to do so. He was retired 
at the plate "by the shortstop's assist. Merkle followed with a single 
which placed Paskert on third. The runners essayed a double steal, 
but it failed to go through and the inning ended without a run. 

An accurate throw to the plate extinguished Boston's last chance 
to score in the second inning, although for a few moments it seemed 
as if the American League representatives would get a run home. 
Whiteman began with a base on balls. Killefer and Tyler ran 
together trying to field Mclnnis' bunt and two were on the bases. 
Scott sacrificed cleverly and Thomas followed at bat. He rapped 
the ball to Pick, who threw home and cut Whiteman out at the 
plate as he was sliding. Agnew fouled to Flack. 

In the eighth inning Schang, batting for Agnew, made a base hit. 
Hooper hit safely to right and Schang, trying for third, was thrown 
out by Flack. That broke up a most promising start. 

Boston's only run was made in the ninth. Strunk, the first 
batter, rapped the ball against the right field fence and scored 
when Whiteman hit the center field fence with a three bagger. 
Mclnnis was thrown out at first, Whiteman playing safe and not 
leaving third. Scott received a base on balls. Dubuc batted for 
Thomas and struck out. Schang, batting for Agnew, flied to Hol- 
locher and the game was over. The score follows :

THIRD GAME— AT CHICAGO, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 7. 

Still adhering to his policy of using left-hand pitchers against 
the Boston club, Manager Mitchell tried Vaughn for the second 
time against the American League champions, but again Vaughn 
was beaten, this time by the insignificant score of 2 to 1. In 
two games Boston scored but three runs against him, yet he was 
unlucky enough to be defeated because his team mates could sconi 
but once in eighteen innings. 

The crowd was the largest of any in Chicago. The series stood 
one-all, and Saturday half holiday Jielped to increase the attendance 
as well as weather that was perhaps more favorable to games of a 
world significance than any that had fallen upon the city since 
the beginning of the series. 

The fourth inning, which has proved momentous in so many 
world series games, witnessed the undoing of Vaughn. Whiteman 
was hit by a pitched ball. Mclnnis rapped a safe hit and Whitemau 
went to second. Schang batted Vaughn for another single and 
Whiteman scored, Mclnnis running to third. Scott rolled a little 
grounder in front of the plate and Vaughn was caught completely 
off his guard and stood like one transfixed, so that Mclnnis scored 
and the batter reached first in safety. Thomas batted a single to 
right field and Schang, who attempted to score from second base, 
was thrown out by Flack. Mays flied to center field. 

In the fifth inning Pick ^began with a two base hit. It was a 
feeble sort of an affair, as the ball bounded to the outfield after 
hitting Scott on the leg. Deal flied out. Killefer batted safely and 
Pick scored. That was Chicago's sole run. The underhand pitch- 
ing of Mays fooled the Chicago batters in all other innings except 
in the ninth, when the Cubs made a bit of a rally that for a 
moment seemed as if it might tie the score. With two out. Pick 
again hit safely. He stole second and went to third on a passed 
ball. Barber, meanwhile, was batting for Deal. Schang under- 
took to nip Pick at third base and the ball was dropped and rolled 
away from Thomas. The Chicago second baseman, without a 
moment's hesitation, dashed for the plate. He was thrown out, 
however, with little to spare. 

While the fourth inning was a lucky one for Boston so far as 
scoring runs was concerned, it also was a fortunate one for Boston 
in another way, as Whiteman, running to the fence in deep left 
field, caught Paskert's long fly, although he bumped into the boards 
as the ball was seized. Mann was on base at the time and might 
almost have walked home had the catch not been made. The score 
of the game follows :

FOURTH GAME— AT BOSTON, MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 9. 

Left-hand pitchers opposed one another in the opening game at 
Boston. Ruth pitched for the home team and Tyler for Chicago. 
The weather was fair and the ground rather heavy. The crowd 
was not so large as some Boston crowds of the past, but it was 
decidedly larger than had been predicted. 

Once more the fourth inning stepped forth to show its somewhat 
weird signiOcance in world series games. Shean, the first batter, 
was given a base on balls by Tyler. Strunk rapped a line drive 
to center field which was caught by Paskert. Tyler took his time 
to wind up before delivering the ball, and Shean was off at the 
moment that the pitcher had either to "let go" or be charged with 
a balk. Killefer, who had been watching the bases and knew what 
was about to happen, was in such haste to get the ball away from 
him that he missed it, as it came to the plate, and a short passed 
ball let Shean anchor easily on second. Wbiteman was the next 
batter and Tyler gave him a pass to first. Mclnnis hit hard, but a 
force-out resulted at third on Shean. Ruth batted next. With two 
strikes and three balls against him, Tyler took a chance and pitched 
the ball squarely over the plate. Ruth hit hard to right center. 
Flack did not gauge the ball accurately and it went to the fence. 
Wbiteman and Mclnnis scored easily and Ruth, running heavily, 
reached third. Scott filed to Paskert. 

In the seventh Chicago missed scoring only for the reason that 
Scott made a most admirable play by stopping a ground hit over 
second base. The result of the stop was a double play between 
second and first. 

The Cuba managed to get a better start in the eighth. Ruth 
was not at his best in the seventh and was clearly flustered in 
the inning following. Killefer, the first batter, was given a base 
on balls. Hendrix, batting in place of Tyler, and something of a 
hitter in pinches, rapped the ball safely to left field. Ruth followed 
with a wild pitch, which moved both runners, Killefer going to 
third and Hendrix to second. Flack tried to hit hard to right field, 
but was put out at first by Mclnnis, who got the ball. McCabe 
went into the game to run for Hendrix. Hollocher batted to second, 
but was thrown out at first, Killefer scoring while the play was 
being made Mann followed with a sharp single to left and^ McCabe 
scored, tieing the count at two each. Paskert tapped a slow rolling 
grounder toward third and was thrown out at first by Thomas. 

Douglas took Tyler's place in the box for Chicago. Schang batted 
a single to center field and went to second on a short passed ball. 
Hooper bunted and Douglas threw the ball beyond Merkle to the 
fence. Schang scored the winning run. Hooper raced to second, 
but Shean, Strunk and Wbiteman were easily retired. 

In the ninth inning Merkle singled and Zeider was given a base 
on balls. Ruth was sent to left field after that inauspicious begin- 
ning and Bush began to pitch for Boston. Wortman bunted. 
Mclnnis got the ball and threw Merkle out at third. Barber, the 
next batter, rapped the ball on the nose, but Scott again saved 
Boston's bacon by making a wonderfully good stop which resulted 
in a double play. The score of the game follows :

FIFTH GAME — AT BOSTON, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 10. 

Twice Manager Mitchell had called upon Vaughn to pitch for 
the Chicagos in the series. Both times he had been beaten. The 
first and the second were well pitched games by Vaughn, as the 
Bostons made but three runs in both, yet won them. Mitchell 
chose Vaughn again and his opponent in the box was Jones, who 
pitched his only game of the series. 

In two innings Boston had a chance to score, and those were the 
only innings offering that advantage. They scored in neither. 
Five hits were made against Vaughn and three double plays clearer! 
the bases in his favor. 

Hollocher made the best record of any player for batting in any 
single game of the series. He hit safely three times. In his second 
time at bat he received a base on balls, giving him a clean record 
for the day. 

Fine outfield catches by Mann and Whiteman contributed to the 
excitement of the spectators. That of Mann was made in the ninth 
inning. He raced up the embankment sloping above left field and 
caught Miller's long and hard drive. 

In the third inning, with two out, Vaughn and Flack being the 
batters, Hollocher was given a base on balls. He stole second 
against Agnew. Mann followed with a hard two base hit to left 
field and Hollocher scored. 

Strunk began the fourth with a double for the Boston club. 
Whiteman batted an easy fly into the air and Mclnnis smashed a 
line drive squarely into Merkle's hands. It was easy to double 
Strunk off second. 

In the sixth inning a perfect throw to the plate prevented the 
Chicagos from scoring. Whiteman made it. Hollocher was on 
second at the time and tried to score on Merkle's hit. The ball 
did not roll deeply enough to the outfield and the Chicago runner 
died as he was sliding. 



SPALDING'S OFFICIAL BASE BALL RECORD. 37 

The last runs of the game were made by the Chicagos in the 
eighth inning. Flack was given another base on balls. Hollocher 
bunted along the third base line and both pitcher and third base- 
man waited to see whether the ball would roll foul. It did not. 
Two men were on the bases with Mann at bat. He popped out and 
then Paslcert batted the ball to left field for two bases. Flack and 
Hollocher scored. The score follows :

SIXTH GAME— AT BOSTON, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 11. 

The final and deciding game of the series was won by Boston 
by the score of 2 to 1. Mays pitched for Boston and Tyler for 
Chicago. The burden of defeat fell upon the shoulders of Flack, 
right fielder of the Chicago club, whose muff of a line drive, with 
two hands out, permitted Boston to score both of its runs. Had 
it not been for this particular muff, the Boston club would have 
been shut out by Chicago. 

In the third inning Tyler gave Mays a base on balls. The Boston 
pitcher is a weak batter and the start proved most disastrous for 
the Chicago club. Hooper sacrificed, Tyler throwing him out at 
first base. Shean received a base on balls. Strunk batted next 
and rapped a grounder to Pick which was fielded slowly. The 
batter was retired at first base, but there were two runners on bases 
with Whiteman at bat. He rapped a line drive to right field and 
Flack came in to get the ball. He muffed it squarely and both 
Mays and Shean scored. Mclnnis hit to the infield and Whiteman 
was thrown out at third, Hollocher to Merkle to Deal. 

In the next inning Flack, for Chicago, rapped a clean base bit 
over second base. Hollocher sacrificed to Mclnnis. Mann was hit 
by a pitched ball and Chicago's chances to score seemed excellent 
until Mann was caught napping at first base by Schang, the Boston 
catcher. Paskert was given a base on balls and Flack made a clean 
steal of third base. Merkle batted a single to left field and Flack 
scored. Had Mann not been retire<l the Chicago players would have 
tied the score in this inning with but one hand out. Pick followed 
with a hard, low line drive to right field. Hooper, who always has 
been a steady and confident player in a world series, came in at 
full tilt for the ball and caught it. That was Chicago's best chance 
to tie the series. 



SPALDING'S OFFICIAL BASE BALL RECORD. 



In Boston's half of the fourth inning the bases were filled, but 
the Chicago players held firmly and Boston failed to score, although 
it seemed at the beginning of the inning as if they meant to carry 
the game to a loose-jointed score. Scott and Schang were on second 
and first. Mays beat out an infield hit. It was lucky that Thomas 
was out after sacrificing for Scott's benefit. Merkle stopped 
Hooper's hard grounder and caught Scott at the plate, while a one 
ha^d stop by Deal of Sheau's hard hit forced Mays at third and 
en( d the inning. 

^ running catch by Whiteman in the eighth inning was one of 
the best plays of the series. He raced forward, threw himself at 
lull length, caught a hard line drive off the turf and, turning a 
complete somersault, righted himself and threw the ball to Scott 
with glee. The score follows :

Twenty Innings Without a Run 

A new major league record for consecuti've innings without a run 
was made at Boston. August 1, 1918, when Pittsburgh defeated the 
home team in twenty-one innings by the score of 2 — 0. The two 
runs were scored in the twenty-first inning. 

The best record for consecutilve innings without a run was made 
in 1909, when Washington and Detroit played eighteen innings on 
July 16, in Detroit, neither side scoring. 

In the twenty-first inning of the game played by Pittsburgh and 
Boston in 1918, Schmidt, the Pittsburgh catcher, began with a hit 
to left field. Cooper, pitcher, who had taken the place of Mayer in 
the sixteenth inning, forced Schmidt out at second. Ellam was 
thrown out at first base. Cooper ran to second on the play, and 
when Leach batted a single to deep short field. Cooper ran to third. 
Carey hit safely to left field and Cooper scored. Southworth fol- 
lowed with another single and Leach scored. 

Nehf pitched the full twenty-one innings for the Boston team. 
Until the twenty-first inning Pittsburgh made but eight hits. In 
the twelfth inning, with Massey on third base, J. Smith, the 
Boston third baseman, bunted fairly. Massey came in from third 
and crossed the plate, but was ordered to return to the base, 
while J. Smith was called out by Umpire Quigley because of alleged 
interference with the ball. It was asserted that he prevented 
Schmidt, the Pittsburgh catcher, from making a possible play. 

Ninet'^en Boston players were left on the bases and not an error 
was made by the Boston team. Mayer was brilliantly supported in 
the field b^ the Pittsburgh players throughout all the innings he 
pitched. The score :

Annual Meetings 



NATIONAL LEAGUE MEETING. 

At the annual meeting of the National League, held in New York 
City, December 10, 191S, John A. Heycller was elected president, 
secretary and treasurer for a term of three years. It was agreed 
to limit the membership of the Board of Directors to four. Messrs. 
Hempstead, New York ; Baker, Philadelphia ; Ebbets, Brooklyn, and 
Herrmann, Cincinnati, were elected for the year 1918-19. A reso- 
lution was agreed upon asking the American League for a joint 
meeting to discuss the player limit, the playing schedule and a 
possible reorganization of the National Commission. 



AMERICAN LEAGUE MEETING. 

The annual meeting of the American League was held in Chicago, 
December IS, 1918. The league passed a vote of confidence approving 
the long and arduous term service of August Herrmann, chairman of 
the National Commission It agreed to a 140 game schedule, begin- 
ning about May 1 and terminating in October, at a seasonal period 
in consonance with 140 games It was announced that the league 
favored a player limit of twenty-one men. Charles A. Comiskey 
was re-elected vice-president of the league, and the directors were 
named as follows: Charles A. Comiskey, representing Chicago; 
Harry Prazee, Boston ; James Dunn, Cleveland, and Jacob Ruppert, 
New York. The league passed a resolution to meet with the 
National League in joint conference in New York, January 16. A 
rule was enacted that waivers may not be recalled if the player 
upon whom waiver is asked is claimed by a club of the American 
League. 



NATIONAL COMMISSION MEETING. 

At the annual meeting of the National Commission, held in Cin- 
cinnati, January 6, 1919, the question of reorganization was deferred 
until after the joint conference between the major leagues in New 
York City, January 16. A. L. Tearney, president of the III. 
League and chairman of a committee appointed to request altera- 
tions of the draft and optional agreement provisions, appeared 
before the commission. The commission said the matter would be 
presented to the joint meeting of the leagues. 

The commission announced that it had received inquiries as to 
their status from several National Agreement ball players, who 
before the completion of the full term of their 1918 contracts were 
given their release and noAV contend that they are free agents. 
This action by the various National Agreement clubs was taken 
with the sanction of the National Commission, because of the strict 
enforcement by the Federal Government of its work or fight order. 

All National Agreement players were notified that the priority of 
their respective 1918 clubs to retain them for this season, as 
reserved by the various clubs, would be respected in order that the 
organization of major and minor leagues and the equipment of 
their respective clubs might be retained and the resumption of the 
game be effected without impairment to the interests of clubs or 
players.

options from majors to minors and went on record as favoring the 
drafting of players among the minors and the advancing of the C 
and D men to the AA and A circuits before these young stars are 
sent to the majors. 

The classification of new leagues to be organized after peace is 
declared will he determined by the aggregate population of cities 
comprising the circuits. Class A A leagues must have an aggregate 
population of 1.750,000; Class A, 1,000,000: Class B, 400,000 to 
1,000.000 ; Class C, 200,000 to 400,000 ; Class D, under 200,000. 
In connection with the reclassification, John H. Farrell, secretary 
of the association, ruled that the territory formerly claimed by the 
III. League, Central League and Central Association was now open. 



INTERNATIONAL LEAGUE MEETING. 

Members of the International I-eague met at the Imperial Hotel 
in New York. December 9. The pennant for 1918 was awarded to 
the Toronto club. President Farrell's report was read and adopted. 
The clubs professed willingness to go forward with the season of 
3 919. Suggestion was made for a salary limit based on the receipts 
and disbursements of the season. John Dunn of the Baltimore 
club opposed the drafting of players of Class AA by the major 
leagues.

At the meeting of the International League, which was held in 
>^ew York, .Tannary 6, 1919, David L. Fultz was elected president of 
the organization for one year. Mr. Fultz succeeded John H Far- 
rell, who resigned. Fultz is a graduate of Brown University, where

delidiia with Connie Mack in 1901. He was one of the stars of 
Macks first championship Athletic club in 1902 

J-^x,^^^'^ Fultz cast his lot with the all-star Yankee team with 
which Clark Criftith invaded New York in that year He later

Fraternity and was elected its first president. He continued at its 
head until it was dissolved. Rochester was not represented at the 
meeting. The league passed a resolution requesting that the draft 
be lifted from the International League. 



Options and Drafts 

Because of the disbandment of most of the minor league clubs 
prior to August 1 and subsequent neglect to file agreements, and 
inability in many cases to obtain them, the National Commission 
calls attention to the fact that its record of such players for last 
season naturally is incomplete. So far as it is possible to do so 
the editor of the Record herewith announces the names of such 
players as were recalled by major league clubs.

SPALDING'S OFFICIAL RASE BALL RECORD. 61 

Comparinfl 1918 National League 
Records with Other Years 

Whcnovcr fJie records (»f (he Nulional LeiiKHo f(.r tho sonson of 
1J>IH nro (() be eonsidered, it will be well to i)lae(! them in a einss 
ly themselves. Comlitioiis were nbnormnl niul not equal IxM-ause of 
(he various results which followed the world war. Individual plaj'- 
ors, of e<iurse. will always he entitled (o (heir totals in the reckon- 
ings for successive years. 'JMicre nuiy he some who will not he 
pn.ud of their totals, hut i( is their fauK if (heir showing' is not 
wliat (hey ant icipa led. An e(|iuil number of ;,'ames was not played 
Ity the clubs, and (he championship was dccid,>d, not accordinfj to 
the (ixed rule of the National L(>at,'uo on a basis (.f ir»I j,'ames but 
on the basis of whatever hai)i)ened to exist heiween (he (line 'that 
It was known the leajj:ue must end its season in Sci)(end»er and a 
few extra pi'"<'« which could be "sandwiched in," that the total 
miKht l)e made to corres|»ond as nearly with other years as possible. 

\Vhil(» (here has been some litde con(roversy in regard to who Is 
entided (o (he chami'ionship ut (he ieajrue in ba(tinK. it is the 
opinhdi of (he edKor of the lUsw Ham. Recoud, as explained else- 
where, that it was earned by Wheat of Brooklyn. It must be 
granted that R<»ush of Cincinnati k'ave him a i-ace (hat was a 
"corker." In more yames h(> was so close a( his h«>(>ls (hat Wheat 
could have heard him if (li(> wind had been blowing his way. 

Another fealur(> about the records <.f 1J)1S must not "be over- 
looked. In perhaps a half dozen instances, players who had been 
away from (heir (cams, in the service, returned' for a brief peri<.d 
to play during furloujj:h. Of course, when they came back, they 
were not in tlie same condition for skill(>d work as lliey had been 
previously. Naturally (hey did not ixo at (heir best, although (hey 
assun'dly <Mijoyed K<'t<inK back in(o (h(« j,'ame. 

The leading run ircder in 1!MS was Croh of Cincinnaii. In 1<)17 
the leading' run->,M>((er was Hums of New York. In 1!H7 Hums 
was (Irst in the ba(tint,' order, as (Jroh was (irst in 11)18. It has 
been oont(>nded (hat the player who is first in the hattlii): order 
always has a distinct advantage over every other jtlayer in the 
matt(>r of making the most runs. lUirns was droi>pe(l down in (he 
battiuK order in 1!»1K for a pordoii of (he (ime. to "clean up," 
radier (ban (o s(ar( ba((inK' play. Naiurally he did not kM't to bat 
as many dmes as if be Had b(>en leadin;: (he badin;.; order steadily. 
He was plac<'d as lead off man later in (he season, but there liad 
been .so iiumy panics in which lie batted furdier down (he lis(. tliat 
It was out of die duesdon for him to ^et into tlu; same' run- 
making total. Possibly this fact will have proved (he coiUendon 
that, odier (hiuKS beiuK c<|ual. it is n<.t possil)le for a player to 
surpass another who is the lead H)(r num. so far as makint; runs la 
concerned. 

In additi(»n to (he (abulated records. President and Secretary 
lleydler of (he National Leat'ue this year adds 'the records of all 
men who took part in few Knmes. Naturally there are n K^'at 
many of them, as the shifts which w(>re <'ompelled from time to 
time in order to keei> teams in the (i«>ld, because of (he dcpjirture 
of men who were called to the servic«>. were so common that all of 
tho mana^'ers were surprised to find a day on which It was not 
uecossary to make some kind of a change. The averages follow:

WALTER JOHNSON IN EXTRA INNINGS 

So unusual was the work of Walter Johnson of the Washington 
club during the season of 1918, that special attention must be 
called to it. The superiority of his skill was not demonstrated so 
much in the fewer number of hits which were made against him 
as in the e.xtraordiiiary num()er of extra inning games in which he 
happened to be entrau^ed — fifteen in all. It is true that it is not 
always the fault of the pitcher that extra inning games are neces- 
sary.' M(»re usually it is the result of bad fielding. However, when 
an extra inning game is forced upon a pitcher,, he is entitled to 
more credit for what he must do on account of the strain. The 
record of these games is as follows : 

TEN INNINGS— May 9, won from Boston, 4—3; opposing pitcher, Ruth. 
June 30, losr to Boston, 3—1; opposing pitcher, Mays. July 31, won from 
Chicago, 3 — 2; opposing pitcher, Shellenback. 

ELEVEN INNINGS— May 4, lost to Philadelphia, 1—0; opposing pitcher, 
Perry. June 2, lost to Cleveland, 1—0; opposing pitcher, Bagby. June 5, 
won from Detroit. 5—4; opposing pitcher, Dauss. July 15, won from Cleve- 
land, 4—3; opposing pitcher, Coumbe, 

TWELVE INNINGS— April 17. lost to New York, 8—7; opposing pitcher, 
Mogridge. June 21, won from New York, 3—2; opposing pitcher, Russell. 

THIRTEEN INNINGS— July 29, lost to Chicago, 1—0; opposing pitcher, 
Benz. 

FOURTEEN INNINGS— August 19, won from St. Louis, 3—2; opposing 
pitcher, Itogers. 

FIFTEEN INNINGS— July 25, won from St. Louis, 1—0; opposing pitcher, 
Sothoron. 

SIXTEEN INNINGS— August 15, lost to Detroit, 8—7; opposing pitcher, 
Cunningham. 

EIGHTEEN INNINGS— May 15, won from Chicago, 1—0; opposing pitcher, 
Williams. August 4, lost to Detroit, 7—6; opposing pitcher, Dauss.

SAFE HITS IN CONSECUTIVE GAMES 

Each season brinjrs forth candidates for the honor of making 
new Base Ball records. Some player, perhaps, bats consecutively 
lor a number of games, another makes a fielding spurt of brilliance, 
while a third accomplishes another endeavor successfully so far as 
it goes. Each season some player threatens the record of safe hits 
for consecutive games, but mostly it is a threat, as it will be a 
difficult task for any energetic ball player, professional or amateur, 
to equal th=' record that was made by vvillie Keeler in 1897. lie 
did not fail to make a base hit in forty-four consecutive games. 
He began April 22 and did not stop until June 18, when Killen of 
IMttsburgh, a left-hand pitcher, was sufficiently expert to prevent 
him from making a safe hit in four trials. In the next six games 
he hit safely again. In the 44 games in which Keeler batted safelv. 
he made an average of .418 with S3 safe hits in 201 chances, good 
for a total of 107 bases. The tabulation of his safe hits follows :

Shis position had a record in fielding of .970 and in battiner of .376", 
a total of 1.346, which would entitle him to the center field position 
>n the Grand National All-America " Team, but as he had a higher 
.-ecord as right fielder of the Baltimore team in 1896, the center field 
was given to Hugh Duffy of Boston with the next highest record of l .336

credit for a eacrifice fly. Afternoon game, April 19, 1918. 

Outfielder makes two double plays unassisted. 

Trfs Speaker, Cleveland A. L., made an unassisted double play in 
the Cleveland-Detroit game of April 18, 1918. He trapped a fly ball 
in the ninth Inning, ran in and tagged Vitt, who hesitated between

An odd game and an unnecessary question. 

In a ten-lnnlng tie game between &'t. Louis N. L. and Philadelphia, 
May 13, 1018, the Cardinals got two hits in the first inning and that 
was all, but they were good for three runs, coupled with a base oft 
balls. One was a homer by Cruise. After the first inning Oeschger 
pitched nine without allowing a hit. Someone has asked, "Does that 
entitle him to a no-hit game?" 

Opposing catcher borrowed to finish game. 

Tn the final game of a double-header between Louisville and Toledo, 
July 21, 1918, Catcher Kelly of Toledo had the unusual experience of 
catching for both teams. Walter Meyer had been injured and Louis- 
ville was without a catcher, as Kocher had left after the first game, 
BO Kelly was borrowed to finish the second game for the Colonels. 

Two home nms in one inning by same player. 

On June !0, 1880, Buffalo at Boston, Jones, Boston, made two homo 
runs in the eighth, his team scoring ten times in that inning. Buf- 
falo ran up nineteen errors, Esterbrook being the only player on the 
^e^m with a clean fielding record.

SPALDING'S OFFICIAL feASEJ fiALL RECORD. 



PART III. 



Intercollegiate Base Ball in War Time 



By Edward B. Moss, New York. 




Edward B. Moss. 



The prominent part which the American 
nolleffian began to play in the world war early 
in 1918 was reflected in the unusual condi- 
tions which prevailed in the college Base Ball 
of last season. In place of the lengthy sched- 
ules, numerous trips and important games 
staged amid the customary scenes of intercol- 
legiate setting, scattering and haphazard con- 
tests were the rule, with the personnel of the 
teams constantly changing, as one after 
another the players entered service. 

The introduction of the Student Army 
Training Corps with its intensive system of 
'Irilling, military study and rigorous routine 
left little time for practice or play upon the 
diamond. The bayonet took the place of the 
oat and Base Ball for the time became a 
c:ame to be played only during the few leisure 
moments of a busy day. That the sport sho\ild 
have held sway at all, under the circum- 
stances, speaks volumes for its hold upon the 
undergraduate and the college athletic world. 
The season's record is therefore little short 
of remarkable. While there is missing the usual lists of from twenty to 
thirty games accredited to the average college which inclades Base Ball 
among its major sports, far more institutions supported teams than might 
have been expected under the circumstances. Notwithstanding canceled or 
curtailed schedules, unexpected loss of prominent players and absence of 
coaches, the majority of the colleges in all parts of the country were repre- 
sented by teams which played, on an average, about one-third of the regular 
schedule. 

Some remarkable records were made, nevertheless, by 'varsity nines In 
various sections of the country. In the East, Yale won all eight games played, 
including two victories each over Harvard and Princeton, and single defeats 
of Dartmouth, Cornell and Pennsylvania. The box work of Pitcher Talcott 
was the outstanding feature, no less than fifty per cent of the victories being 
shutouts. Holy Cross also was represented by a team of exceptional ability. 
The nine played a most unusual war time schedule, winning twenty-five out 
of twenty-nine games, tieing another, and lost but three. Among her oppo- 
nents were Southern colleges, the service academies, training camp teams and 
virtually all of the New England college combinations. 

Colby College of Maine was another institution represented by a team with 
a perfect winning percentage at the close of the season, the Waterville nine 
winning eleven games straight. Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute won eight 
out of ten games ; Lafayette six out of eight, and Tufts, twelve out of 
seventeen. Both the West Point and Annapolis academies played rather 
lengthy schedules for such an upset season and showed high class ability. 
The Military Academy won two-thirds of the twenty-one games played, 
Including among its victories the defeats of Cornell, Johns Hopkins, Ford- 
ham and Springfield The Naval Academy won eleven out of fourteen con- 



SPALDING'S OFFICIAL BASE BALL RECORD. 215 

tests, defeating, among others, Fordham, Georgetown, West Virginia and Col- 
gate. Swarthmore also ranlted higli witli five victories out of seven games 
of an abbreviated schedule. 

Other teams which approximately broke even in the rather short series of 
the 1918 season wore Syracuse, six won and six lost ; Brown, five out of 
eleven games won : Cornell, five won, five lost ; Dartmouth, six out of thir- 
teen ; Union, five out of thirteen, and Villanova, seven out of eleven. Har- 
vard and Princeton played nine and six games, respectively. The Crimson 
showing was not up to the usual standard and the same is true of the 
Orange and Black. 

Middle Western colleges maintained a high percentage during the season, 
although the same handicaps and uncertainties prevailed that marked the 
season in the East. The play of the University of Michigan team was one of 
the features of this section. The Wolverines won sixteen out of seventeen 
games, defeating Chicago, Notre Dame, Indiana, Iowa, Illinois, Ohio State 
and other strong teams. Chicago scored the single triumph of the season 
against Michigan, winning the second of a series of three games. Notre 
Dame, with ten out of fifteen games won ; Michigan Agricultural College, with 
seven out of twelve ; Purdue, six out of thirteen ; Indiana, four out of thir- 
teen, and Ohio State, nine out of fourteen, were among the stronger college 
teams of the section. 

In the South, West Virginia had a well balanced winning team, as the 
record of fourteen victories, out of eighteen games played, proved. The nine 
defeated several strong Eastern teams during its Northern trip, including 
Syracuse, Colgate, Dartmouth and the United States Military Academy, as 
well as winning three straight from Virginia. The latter won seven out of 
eleven, losing one contest to North Carolina in addition to the West Virginia 
defeats. The Mt. St. Mary's combination won nine out of twelve games and 
Virginia Poly won eight out of twelve, Kentucky had a strong team, win- 
ning seven out of nine, with victories over Georgetown College and Tennessee. 

On the Pacific Coast, California won seven out of eleven, including two 
games of the three played against Stanford. St. Mary's College of Oakland 
won ten out of fifteen played, defeating, among other teams, California and 
Stanford. The University of Texas team was one of the best along the 
Southern border. The Austin collegians won all but one of eighteen games 
played. Four of their victories were shutouts, while double figure scores 
were made in seven games, the largest being thirty runs in one contest. The 
solitary defeat was a T to shutout scored by Texas Agricultural and 
Mechanical, which later was twice defeated. The latter combination was 
another nine of exceptional strength playing in the same section, winning 
fourteen out of nineteen games, six of which were shutouts. 

Prospects for the coming season in college Ease Ball are such as to indi- 
cate a much more active season in 1010 than Avas the case twelve months 
earlier. With the suspension of the S.A.T.C. courses, college athletics, includ- 
ing Base Ball, promise to resume, to some extent, their "former position in 
the university routine. Schedules are being prepared, coaches engaged, and 
in several cases indoor practice is already under way. Many students who 
dropped their studies to enter army or navy service are returning, including 
a number who had won 'varsity letters in Base Ball during their sophomore 
and .iunior years. They will form the nucleus of strong combinations expected 
at many colleges this spring. It is doubtful if the 1019 schedule will be quite 
as lengthy as in the past, but far more games are assured than wore played 
in 1918. Few of the Eastern colleges will make the Southern trips so popular 
a few years ago, due to the high railroad fares and the amount of scholastic 
work which must be completed during the next few months. In other 
respects the coming season will approach those of pre-lwar days.
